Black 231, 44k miles £2500, 12 month MOT **SOLD**

I have enjoyed my time with this amazing car but the arrival of a large campervan on the driveway is forcing me to sell my RX8 and my 340i. I thought I'd advertise here first in case a forum member is looking for a well looked after car that is very track friendly.

I have taken maintained my RX8 fastidiously for the last three years and it has never let me down once in that time, including more than 10 track days at Castle Combe, Snetterton, Thruxton, Brands etc. I have set out below the good points and things that if I were a perfectionist I might look at:

2004 231ps RX8, 44k miles, 12 month MOT, black with black and red leather heated electric seats, aircon etc. No cruise control.

I am the second owner and purchased the car from a friend who owned it from new. Neither of us used it as a daily drive, hence the low mileage.
Brand new PZ suspension last year.
D585s and uprated wiring
Braided brake lines
Full service including spark plugs, plus new Pagid discs and pads in May of this year
Spare set of standard alloys with Federal track day tyres - probably good for a couple more track days. The wheels fit nicely in the rear of the car if the seat cases and backs are removed, leaving the boot free for the rest of the track day essentials.

Michelin Pilot Sport 3 tyres, decent tread
New windscreen this year
Replacement radio display as was missing a few pixels - now working perfectly

It is a 16 year old car so its definitely not in perfect condition. It has a couple of slight car park dents, a crack in the rear light cluster and a scuff on the rear bumper. Looks good in spite of these issues, as you can see from the pics.

Overall it pulls strongly, handles amazingly well on it's PZ suspension and has provided many days of enjoyment at the track without missing a beat. Friends who have driven it on track days are always surprised at the speed it carries around corners, particularly more flowy tracks like Thruxton and Castle Combe.

£2500 ono.
